Energy Reduction of Machine Tools


Article Preview

Machine tools, which are used in factories for long hours and many years, have a great influence on power consumption of the factories. Therefore, reducing machine tool power consumption is one of the important subjects for today’s machine tool manufacturers. In this paper, we will report on our ongoing efforts to improve energy efficiency of machine tools.
